Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have
some signs of use (although not major ones).
May have slight surface noise when played.
Additional Marks & Notes
If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially
if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record.
This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip,
cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
2 really great early numbers from Earth Wind & Fire! "Mom" is a lot nicer than you might think from the title – not sappy at all, but a righteous soul number with that sublime blend of jazz and soul that EWF had in their best early records. "Power" is even better ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Back to back slammers from Salsoul Orchestra! "Nice N Naasty" has a great funky bit on the intro – setting the scene for a jaunty groove that's not nearly as kitshcy as you'd expect from the title, and which has all the sweet Salsoul touches firmly in place! "Nightcrawler" ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
